The top grids did suffer a major loss this month — the 300-region Meta7 grid shut down due to legal troubles.
In fact, many users ran out of their free beta “Kitely Credits” due to high usage — spurring Kitely CEO Ilan Tochner to top up user accounts to allow regular use to continue.
One high-traffic region was The Emporium by Kati Jack Studio, a place where Kitely users can pick up free trees, tables and chairs, a tea house, and even a conference facility.
(Full story here.) The Faerie Castle region in the photo above, for example, is available free at Open Sim Worlds.

However, OSGrid retained its place at the top with 60,899 total registered users, adding 1,374 new users this month.
Avination retained its top position as the grid with the most active users, with a total of 8,066 users who logged in during the past 30 days.
OSGrid allows home-based regions and, since those regions may not be up all the time, keeps slots reserved for them — even if the owners had shut the regions down or moved them elsewhere.
In second place in terms of region growth was the cloud-based Kitely grid, with 143 new regions, for a new total of 673 regions.
